From Pago Pago, American Samoa, Iosefa was a 3-year letterman in high school, suiting up at Quarterback, Free Safety and Linebacker. He committed to play college ball at the University of Hawaii.
Iosefa excelled for the Rainbow Warriors, starting 29 of 32 games as a RB/FB. He finished his career with 2,218 yards and 21 touchdowns and caught 60 passes for 3 touchdowns. He was drafted in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After being one of Tampa Bay’s final roster cuts, Iosefa was quickly scooped up by the New England Patriots, where he made his NFL debut with 51 rushing yards on 14 carries.
A bulldozer who can deliver a thump, the 6’0″, 245 lb Fullback will suit up in The Spring League’s 2018 season. Iosefa earned his Patriots’ teammates respect and admiration; now, he’ll look to win over the scouts in attendance in order to get back to playing on Sunday’s.
